Web Site Trick

I almost forgot (and have updated). when building a site with your fave font (futura and gill sans in my case) and are not sure whether your average site user will have it (if they don't then a default font will take its place, normally ruining your design) then you have to think laterally.

Remember some old pc's and new versions for example don't have futura or gill sans which is unbelievable or should i take a hint.

Back to the task, duplicate your written work turn it to the back ground colour you have chosen. Put it behind your original work, this will be picked up as written work by internet search spiders.The written work above turn into an image. 

On iweb this is simple, put a shadow on the work the SAME colour as the background, (thus it will not show up) this will automatically turn it into an image.

If you know HTML have a look and you will see it in the code. 

It works, so now updated so everyone can see the Herculanum font i have used as my logo for Park life.

To check (especially if you are a mac user) find an old pc and look via the web.

Built a web site with apple iweb so no flash, but has come out alright. 

Enjoy, any constructive criticism welcome.

Done, Dusted and back to reality....Bump


Been a while due to doing stupid hours to get it all done, got to the point were sleeping seemed like a guilty pleasure!

Everyone really pulled something special out of the bag in the last two weeks well done to all my class mates.

As usual looking around at everybody else's work see big gaps in mine, but came to the conclusion that we will always be better off following our own cue. 

Regrets, still think my sequential's are a bit heavy, whereas my 1;50 seemed to hit the spot, with movement and a light touch.

Would've liked to have done a seasonal page as i played around with colours earlier on, no time. Would've liked the model to be better, seeing the rest of the class picked up some good idea's, and well done some really nice models.

I think i managed to get the point across with this one, room for improvement on the trees though.

Distance and our friendly monks take a stroll.

A particular fave, really thought about the issues as i designed this in particular hidden fixings, but with accessibility for maintenance.

This one seemed popular in the sense 'ooh i would like to go there' so managed to sell the festival idea with the ravine.

Just need £20million to build it..... offers welcome
